251-2578 - Soulin' 148 - Tony Owens - I Know You Don't Love Me No More
- the flip was also released on #147, with the same code number: 2508
As you might have noticed, I've been trying to catch up with a backlog of mp3s that Sir Shambling sent along over a year ago as the site was being built, and uploading them to our YouTube Channel.
One of those seemed to have been labeled wrong - it was a Tony Owens song, listed as being on Soulin' 148. When I checked 45cat, http://www.45cat.com/record/nc372342us
, it had Soulin' 148 as being "Confessin' A Feeling" - which is 'uncoded' - apparently released after the Dover Collapse (and promptly picked up by Jerry Wexler at Atlantic).
I contacted Sir S. about it, and he went and dug out the 45 (which he's owned for about 40 years), and lo and behold, he was right!
Not only was the code (2578) among The Missing, but the 45 wasn't listed on any Tony Owens or Soulin' discographies that I could find, and wasn't included on the Grapevine 'I Got Soul' CD either...
Probably one of the last 45s to bear the Dover Records logo, it must have been swallowed up in the wreckage... SO - may I present to you a previously unknown CRANKING Tony Owens tune!!http://youtu.be/d4_RdhDieUE
Now up on 1968, linked to 45cat and our own YouTube video, 2578 removed from among The Missing...
THANK YOU SIR SHAMBLING!! You Da Man!!
